Version 1.4 of my Desktop Slideshow widget is here. The issue where it won’t load should be fixed. I’ll try to get it posted to the widget gallery as soon as possible, but it usually takes them weeks.
For those who don’t know, “widgets” are free little applications that do all kinds of useful things like display the weather or (like mine) change your desktop background. This widget works with the Yahoo Widget Engine (formerly Konfabulator). Widgets can be cross-platform, but this one is Windows only.
To use it, install the widget engine, then download the widget and double-click on it. It will bring up a little “slide projector” icon. Right-click on the slide projector to set options (what folder to look in for images and how quickly to cycle through them).
